chuck hagel who has been nominated to be secretary of defense has been proposing. he has said so many things against us even as a nation being nuclear armed and ready, that it is very disturbing to people all across the country. bill: if you think that, do you think we've lost the argument with iran over its nuclear program? is that time passed? >> well, i think that the time has passed. they now view it as, us versus them. sanctions have worked to lower the value of their currency. sanctions have had an impact on people through throughout the country of iran. but i don't believe they have had the impact that has been desired against the iranian government. bill: why are we sitting down and talking again? what's the expectation from something like this? >> i think very little would be expected. i would expect the iranians to have their arms folded in front of their chest and sitting there, perhaps, listening, but basically they're continuing to run out the clock. they may even talk a little bit about wanting to negotiate but they have no interest in, my opinion, bill, in negotiating o
-cents a share. bill: the stage is set for a fight over chuck hagel. senate democrats will hold a straight up or down vote on his confirmation friday in an attempt to break a republican filibuster, meaning that hagel will need 60 votes, five of them from republicans now, many of whom who threatened to block his confirmation. here is lindsey graham as to why republicans are not sold on hagel. >> the debate on chuck hagel is not over. it has not been serious, we don't have the information we need and i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through until we get answers about what the president did personally when it came to the benghazi debacle. democrats had no problem doing that with bush and quite frankly they did the country a service by probing into failure. bill: what is going to happen now, bret baier is anchor of special ror. how d special report? how are you doing. >> reporter: good morning, bill. bill: harry reid is talking about this potentially on the floor of the senate. if there is news we'll bring it to our viewers. graham says the debate is not over, it has
the charge publicly against chuck hagel. yet he you voted to confirm him as defense secretary. he was sworn two hours ago at the pentagon. why the vote to favor him? >> i filibuster ited him white -- twice because i wanted more information. when republicans stick together we could get information. i was disappointed several on my side after they filibustered him up immediately announced they wouldn't continue the filibuster so we never got the information. i'm the same way on brennan. i want more information on drone strikes in america. on final passage though i take the position that the president does have some leeway and some prerogative who he appoints to political appointees. so i would like to get as much information as can. i will stick with the party, if the party will stick together to get more information. in the end i voted for john kerry also although i agree with almost nothing that john kerry represents. bill: will secretary hagel be a good and satisfactory defense secretary in your view? >> you know, i don't really know. there are many libertarian reasons not to be excited ab
, the republicans used the hagel nomination as leverage and they basically said we're going to hold this up until we get this information. the white house did not want to release it, they had refused to release it, they said that these emails within the administration were part of the deliberative process, but they knew that the hagel nomination might not get through without it and so they are going to release the information to try to satisfy the senators. now of course the interesting question is what is in the emails, why is it that this was from early on in the week after 9/11 when it was seen first as a terror attack and then suddenly it wasn't a terror attack and al-qaida was part of it, then suddenly al-qaida was not part of it, by the time susan rice came on "fox news sunday" that sunday, five days later, it was a spontaneous demonstration in reaction to the ante islam video that spun out of control. and the question is how do we get from this pint to that point? martha: that is really back to the seed of whatever wants a good grip on here. petraeus as head of the cia at the time said they k
carolina senator lindsey graham who threatened to hold up the confirmation for chuck hagel, his successor. so what did the president know about the benghazi attack september 11, when did he know about it and what did he do about it? sources i talked to say panetta and others are carrying out the orders of the commander-in-chief. so what were they and how were they handled. expect fireworks. rick: later on this afternoon the president's nominee the head of the cia takes center stage. >> reporter: expect john brenner to get plenty of questions about the use of enhanced interrogation techniques during this time at cia. he left there in 2005. at the white house they are emphasizing brennan's experience. >> mr. brennan brings, i think, not on a vast amount of experience, but a significant perspective on the battles that we wage in this effort. and the right way to conduct them. so the president believes the senate should and will confirm john brennan expeditiously. >> reporter: expect him to get questions about how involved he was in interrogation techniques at the cia. rick: senator lindsey g
